We look back at the inspirational women we’ve featured this year

SHOP THE EXPECTANT EDIT>

No woman is exactly like another and the same holds true for pregnancy. Every woman experiences it differently. Some find the whole process of expecting thrilling, while others find it arduous. Whatever your feelings, the time when you carry a baby is a truly unique period in a woman’s life. Here are some of our favourite thoughts from the women who have shared their stories with us…

“I love being pregnant because it’s so fleeting – it’s only a few months of your life. I like the fact that you feel special, I love it when I can feel the baby kick. It’s really beautiful.”

“Some guys in a restaurant were like, ‘Oh my god, they’re twins and they’re pregnant together. That’s insane! But for me it’s almost normal, we have always been two in life” (on expecting at the same time as her twin sister).
